Get to know Julio Contreras

I work predominantly with residential properties in the San Fernando Valley.  I work with clients of all ages helping them to determine and fulfill their individual unique real estate needs.  I carry the designation, recognized by the National Association of REALTORS® as indicative of my having completed special courses of education and training to help me best assist clients with their special concerns with buying or selling their properties.  I have also worked with many clients, often first time buyers or people purchasing residential properties as investments.

There are a number of communities in the San Fernando Valley, most of which are actually part of the City of Los Angeles.  An exception is San Fernando which is an independent city in and of itself.  For the most part these communities are not distinct one from the other as far as noticing a boundary when passing from one community to the next.

Within the San Fernando Valley there is a wide range of properties of various prices.  I am happy to serve all of these communities.  Because of all the names of these communities it can be misleading to one not familiar with the San Fernando Valley.  In fact, they are all in close proximity to one another geographically. I have serve clients from Orange County to Bakersfield, and as far as Northern California.

I was first licensed in 2006 as Realtor I have experience working at Countrywide Home Loans from 1999, as a Customer Service Agent and Sr Underwriter from 2003 to 2005 and 2005 to 2007 at No Red Tape as a Sr QC Underwriter, Collateral Assestment department.

I have lived in the San Fernando Valley Since 1981, I attended Francis Polytechnic High School and graduated in 1986 and Pierce College and granduated, and attended CSUN.

The more contact I have with my community, the better I will understand the ongoing needs and concerns of the community, and consequentially, the better I will be able to serve the community.  

In an effort to position myself to be able to best serve these various communities, and especially my community of clients, I have been and continue to be active in various organizations.  Additionally, I strive to stay up to date on issues affecting or potentially affecting my clients.  To this end, in addition to any state mandated continuing education requirements, I have also earned several professional designations and certifications.

MEMBERSHIPS

Associations of REALTORS®

I belong to my local board of REALTORS® automatically requires membership in both the California (CAR) and National Association of REALTORS® (NAR)  I am a member of the Southland Regional Association of REALTORS® (SRAR which is the local board serving the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys in southern California), and therefore also a member of the California Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®.  I am also a member of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) of the Greater Antelope Valley Association of REALTORS®.

The local associations typically provide MLS and other services to enhance members' ability to best meet the needs of clients.  The local, state, and national associations all oversee and enforce a high level of ethical conduct on the part of their members.  They also provide many educational and training opportunities for their membership.  All of this enhances the likelihood of REALTORS® being able to give better service with a higher level of professionalism than other real estate practitioners who may not be REALTORS®.

My active participation in the local community helps me with an excellent opportunity to develop relationships with many of the area's most active and productive agents and brokers.  These relationships, of course, put me in a better position to help my clients sell or buy properties in our area.

I find working with first-time homebuyers such a joy. These transactions take special care amd I am most happy to provide it.  Increasingly important and timely, is how my appraising background provides my clients and referral partners such great benefit during the mortgage process.  The housing market's current pricing and appraising challenges makes this an especially valuable knowledge to hold and utilize during my clients' home buying transactions,  mortgage applications, and mortgage planning.
